Zac, Richard and Christian unveil a marker for the Mercury

Also present was Orson Welles' daughter, Chris Welles Feder. The group dedicated a marker honoring the original location of the Mercury Theater.

According to JJ the marker says:

“On this site in 1937, legendary American actor-writer-director-producer Orson Welles founded the Mercury Theatre with John Houseman. Here Welles directed groundbreaking productions of Julius Caesar, The Shoemaker’s Holiday, Heartbreak House, and Danton’s Death. Welles and the Mercury Theatre would go on to make history with The War of the Worlds broadcast and Citizen Kane. Astonishingly, he would accomplish all this by his 26th birthday.”
